Here’s some gluten-free/dairy-free, but thank heaven not alcohol-free, penne a la vodka that I made this weekend and will definitely be making again.  I’ve become smitten with Smitten Kitchen lately and found the recipe there. Follow Deb’s directions except substitute the pasta for your gf pasta of choice and the cream for coconut milk. I know it sounds weird, but don’t worry, it is delicious!

I’m also intrigued by Steamy Kitchen, which actually has a gluten-free recipe category! A friend sent me a link to Jadyn’s How To Turn Cheap "Choice" Steaks Into Gucci "Prime" Steaks recipe that explains the science behind how salt tenderizes meat. I had to try it and it’s true! It really works!

    Hi, you need to show a picture of the “standing room only”” crowd! The event was a resounding success!! We raised awareness and lots of money.
    It was a real treat meeting you in person as well. You are even prettier than your picture (if that is possible).
    Thanks for all your hard work.
    Cheers. Deb Shear
